St. Mary’s College in Notre Dame, IN, is a catholic, women’s institution with a focus on “creating leaders & women of action.” The college offers more than 30 majors, which include 6 nationally accredited programs, and four graduate programs, which are co-ed. St. Mary’s offers study abroad opportunities in nearly 20 countries and more than half of the student body utilizes the program, which offer travels to Italy, China, Morocco, Argentina, and more. The campus is home to three Centers of Distinction, the Center for Spirituality, Center for Women’s Intercultural Leadership, and the Center for Academic Innovation, the last of which can award independent student study and research grants.
A very warm and supportive atmosphere. A small campus, with very involved faculty and a close community. Comes with most of the benefits of the larger school, Notre Dame, across the way, but also with the drawbacks of stereotypes from Domers.

Saint Mary's College has given me so many opportunities, not only have I come to learn more about myself but I have also found who I am as a women. Saint Mary's is small and there is always one on one attention with your professors. It is a great place to be and everyone is so helpful and wants you to succeed.
